    Here we can still pump gas before paying ... and Root Beer Popsicle's are number 1 . You cant buy beer at a gas station here. :)

    That's what i love about traveling ... it is so interesting to see and learn stuff!

    UPDATE --> I e-mailed usaddress to check one more time, and gosh darn it - the books have arrived! :rotfl: I guess whoever shipped them goofed and didn't realize we paid $6 extra to have the books arrive before we did. :rolleyes:

    I guess a trip back to Niagara is in order. I can't just send my husband as the books are in my name, darn it. Maybe this is a good time to start talking about that overnight stay we always meant to do with the kids at Great Wolf Lodge. ;) A planned weekend stay at GWL in 2010 turned into a 10-day WDW trip instead. :teeth:

    Hi and welcome! You're right. It is interesting. And surprising because I keep feeling it should be pretty much the same for all that we're two different countries. I guess a lot of American tv content makes it feels like it should be the same.

    WHERE do you find root beer popsicles?? I love root beer and root beer flavoured hard candies. I would love to try a RB popsicle! Gee, and I always thought I was lucky that I can still find banana, lime and cherry popsicles at the corner store in the summer.

    Since someone mentioned possible issues about importing books, I wanted to chime in. I've ordered tons of books from the States over the years, and most of them were delivered to em in Canada. I used UPSP/Canada Post, so Canada Post managed the brokering. Nothing stopped at the border. And since I paid taxes on the books many times, they new what was in the package, so it's not just chance. I'm pretty sure you won't have any issues with your box of books at the border.

    Good to know, thanks! My husband is waiting for another shipment of books from that States that does deliver to Canada. Should be here soon.

    I was in Buffalo yesterday and filled my tank at the gas station by Tops near the Outlet Mall. They had a button 'pay inside' so I chose that and paid inside. Easy.

    Just to add about cross border shopping...
    We use an address in Lewiston as many others have addresses here also. My daughter shipped luggage to us (from NYC) pre Christmas. We watched it online with Fedex as it was destined to our home here. It left NY ..went back to NY...left again..ended up back. Seems there was an issue with the paperwork at the border. So we called Fedex, said please, ship to Lewiston NY. It was delivered the next day-I picked up yesterday. We also just bought all new family room furniture there in Nov. Made in Nth Carolina...picked up this past Saturday. No probs at all..paid HST at the border and that was that.

    :)
